OXFORD — Nestled in the hills of Oxford, Mississippi, lies Rowan Oak, an antebellum style home built in 1844 by Irish immigrant Colonel Robert Sheegog and mostly known as the longtime residence of William Faulkner.
The world-renowned writer and Nobel Prize winner bought the home in 1930 and called it home until his death in 1962. Since then, the iconic property has gained a reputation as a home for some ghostly inhabitants … a reputation almost entirely created by the author himself.
